Pro-Bike Pro-Walk Conference 2010

I recently attended the Pro-Bike Pro-Walk Conference organised by the US National Center for Biking and Walking and held in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  I was attending on a professional basis and manning a stand in the exhibition hall so was unable to attend the talks but did get to look around the poster sessions and pick up a lot of useful information.

What was really interesting was how strong the sustainable transport movement has become in the US and what has been achieved.  There was evidence that drivers in Chattanooga really were giving priority to pedestrians and cyclists at non-signal controlled junctions.  This is quite unnerving to a brit, grown used to a bit of argy bargy in these situations.

Some Interesting Websites


Here is a list of publications I picked up - if anyone wants to borrow/copy any please let me know.  I will bring the whole lot to the next open meeting.
